    And, you are told that there ain't no water to grow your flowers, or drink, or God Forbid keep a production line going that requires "water". Israeli farmers, and Palestinian Arab farmers, as well as Californian farmers and Mexican farmers may not believe in Anything, but without rain their crops will not grow very well. Don't know where you live, but your tomatoes and cucumbers need water, too. Did I forget the watermelons you like to eat also need . . . So you pray. Then again, it is said that we get our rain as a sign that we are doin' what God wants us to do, and when we don't there is no rain as a punishment, as message to mend our ways. So we pray, and try to mend our ways. Ya' see, when there is nothing "wet" falling from the sky you gotta' do something. Short of complaining, you might as well pray, dude.
